Sustainable Multi-Family Housing (Design Only)

Falmouth, MA

This design study was prepared for an internationally renowned scientific research institution as a means of providing residential accommodations for scientists, researchers, graduate students and staff.   

With a limited footprint to work within, we were able to site the buildings in such a way that would take advantage of solar gain from rooftop photovoltaic panels.  Combined with a carefully designed and well insulated building envelope, our energy models predict that these buildings would consume less than a quarter of the energy than the average American home.
